New Old Stuff on Overflow

I just received my new scanner via the wonderfully efficient people over at FedEx. I don't have time to say much more than that right now. Go over to my photo blog to see sone of my favorite shots (so far). I shot it with a Canon AE-1 Program on Ilford HP5 Plus, ISO 400. I printed it on Ilford Multigrade IV RC Deluxe. Everything was done on film and in a dark room right up to when the print hit the scanner bed.

Gotta Run... there will be more.

Really nice photo Mike....So you took the picture and developed it the old fashioned way...Printed it the old fashioned way and then "scanned" it in with your new scanner?? Do I have that right?
I'm fascinated by the fact that that is the way you did this...Is this better than digital everything? Do tell more when you have a chance...!
Michele sent me over this morning...!

That is a wonderfully atmospheric photo.

Do you prefer film photography then? What I like is the chance to experiment with digital photography - instant feedback and the ability to delet anyhting you don't like make it easy to adjust and try different things.

Michele sent me and I have been able to leave you a comment at last!

Michele sent me over again, Mike. Sortof.

I guess whoever provides that word verification thing must have their servers down--but you'd think that after 3 days they'd have the problem fixed. Oh well.

Congrats on your new scanner. My only one is 8 years old and just doesn't work very well. I keep meaning to buy a new one but never seem to bother...

I didn't know you had a photo blog too. Man, you're very talented. I love the second photo of the orangy building on your campus. It's stunning. The sky looks just like one of those postcards from the 40's. Excellent work.

Great mood, Mike. I can't wait to see what other secrets your "real" photos hold. You've reminded me of why I fell in love with photography in the first place.

Keep 'em coming...

I love that picture! All those pictures on your photo blog were really wonderful, I'm a big fan of black & white photography so I liked those best though.
Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier.
